Yum! Pasta is a food that many people love to eat, and this is true in so many different parts of the world. However, quickly coming up with pasta recipes can be a little bit of a challenge. What are some quick and delicious ones that you just have to try?
Pasta with Meat Sauce
Spending time making meatballs can be a little bit cumbersome when you are in a hurry, so make a meat sauce instead. You just have to brown the meat, and then you can cook it with the sauce. If you are really pressed for time, you can just use a jarred sauce and heat it up for a while with your own spices. Then you get that homemade taste without all of that extra work.
Pasta and Vegetables
If you use whole wheat pasta with this recipe, then you can really make it healthy. Sauté or grill some vegetables while the pasta is cooking, and then you can toss it all together. What should you use for the sauce? Well, the choice is really up to you. A red sauce or a cream sauce could work. You might even want to try tossing this with a little bit of salad dressing.
Add in Other Meats
You do not always have to go with the traditional meat sauce style when you want to add some protein to your pasta. Instead, grill up some chicken or sausages. You can really serve pasta with whatever type of meat pleases your palate. If you want the traditional meatball-style but are looking for something a bit healthier, turkey meatballs will do just that. You can find pre-made ones in the store, so you do not have to prepare them at home.
Macaroni and Cheese
Denying the delicious taste of macaroni and cheese is hard, and you probably won’t find too many people who are willing to do it. At the store, you can usually purchase kits to make it at home. However, the dish is not difficult to prepare from scratch either. If you really do not have a lot of time, you can just mix in some cheese immediately after the macaroni is finished cooking. Put some butter in there too, and you really have a treat that your entire family is going to love.
Cold Pasta Salad
You could make the pasta and vegetables from the earlier section and just leave it out until it is cold. No matter what you want to do, pasta salad is great because you can put it in the refrigerator, take it for lunch and not worry about having to heat it up when you are having a busy day.
Delicious pasta is really something that pleases a lot of people, and you are no exception to that rule. When you’re low on time, you can always try pre-made pasta sauces like Continental pasta recipes that taste equally as good as the original.
